Dark Souls III, released spring 2016, is the third installment in the Dark Souls action-adventure role playing game series. The game follows the same artistic rule set used in earlier installments. Key aesthetics involve crumbling gothic architecture, dark forests, and many other uninviting landscapes, evoking a constant sense of dread in the player. This dark, ominous-feeling art style was further enhanced in Dark Souls III by a liberal use of embers and ash, which tie into the central story theme of an 'Ashen One' tasked with rekindling the 'First Flame' to avert the start of a 'Dark Age'. Most of the design adheres to a 'withered beauty' standard, in which objects, buildings and people are malformed by various forms of decay: chests are rusty, trees overgrown with heavy moss, bodies disintegrating. The end result is a well-designed hellscape, where players need all their cunning and resolve to defeat the grotesque creatures thrown their way.
